We hosted our first ladies’ friendly on Friday 12th May; it seemed appropriate that this should be against Winscombe, as the 2 clubs have a long and close association and rivalry.
Pauline Mabbutt, Angie Bass and Kim Wright had a close game until the 11th end when it was 9 all. Unfortunately Winscombe then picked up a 7 - a step too far for Banwell after that, with the final score 10-19 to Winscombe. Many thanks to Pauline for stepping in to play at the last minute as a guest player.
Belinda Butcher, Jan Davies and Wendy Coleman made a good start and were 8-2 up after 6 ends. However, it all went Winscombe’s way from there on, and the final score was 11-14 to Winscombe. Well done to Belinda who managed to play the whole match after a knee injury early on. Hope you are ok today.
Jenny Williams, Pam Gibbons and Sue Taylor were the star players of the afternoon, taking an early lead which they built on consistently to win 21-11. Well played ladies.
It was a very close game overall, finishing 42-44 to Winscombe, and a most enjoyable afternoon.
Our next challenge is Nailsea on Tuesday morning!
